A leading bank and a mobile company would introduce a technology when one was charged with traffic law violation could pay the fine through his/her mobile phone, sources said.

Informed sources told Daily Mirror said any one charged with a traffic law violation could SMS the bank asking it to credit the amount specified as the fine to the post office account from his account.

“Taking the ticket and paying the fine to the post office and then going and collecting your driving license will be a thing in the past,” an informed source who is playing an active role in introducing the new technology said.

This would another technology driven changes with regard to motor traffic in Sri Lanka after the introduction of the CCTVs in Colombo in December last year. (Yohan Perera)

    Very bad idea. This will reduce the vigilance of some drivers who can afford to pay over phones. Instead, there should be effective mechanisms to reduce traffic offenses including improvements in the infrastructure.

    At last no need to bend your neck,hair scratching to the corps.
    I hate when they grab our Driving License.
    They are still primitive when compared with other countries.
    When can we see the SL Police fully automated???

    Use of technology is s must to go forward as a developing country

    gayan Monday, 16 May 2011 07:12 AM

    Good move. Other countries are using more advance technologies. You can pay your charges using your credit card through a official web site. Following benefits can be achieved.
    1. Most common malpractices bribery etc will be reduced.
    2. Hazel of going to post offices, police stations will be minimized.
    3. Lot of unnecessary paper works, standing time will be minimized.

    with regard to view of encouragement of violation, there is no other option than increasing the fine and introducing automated systems such as speed camera wherever possible.

    Oh Good the Traffic Police will take the Mobile Phone and No Fine....................

    Gon Wansha Monday, 16 May 2011 07:45 AM

    How to pay the bribe to cop?

    Bernard Monday, 16 May 2011 08:05 AM

    Stupid idea. Where is the punishment?

    Abdul Monday, 16 May 2011 08:26 AM

    This will be a good solution, However, this service should be offered by each and every network, not merely one,

    waz85 Sunday, 15 May 2011 11:58 PM

    well this seems a perfect solution finally, because that is what they used to do in the stone age.. where u walk to the post office and pay the fine. however, with the introduction of the new technology after paying the fine through your mobile phone, does the police take the responsibility of posting the license back to you??? that would be great. if that would ever happen..you probably not get your license back for several months.. with the government institutes working at that snail pace.

    KE Monday, 16 May 2011 12:51 AM

    Excellent, There will no longer be need to bribe the traffic cops and no hassle in hanging around police stations and post offices

    Puncha Monday, 16 May 2011 12:56 AM

    A good move, this will help to reduce the bribes taken by police

    lankan Monday, 16 May 2011 01:09 AM

    And be find again for using the phone inside the car ???????????

    Flame Monday, 16 May 2011 10:08 AM

    very good move,no need to go to post office now

    Lalindra Monday, 16 May 2011 03:00 AM

    this will never happen in Si Lanka. do u think that Police is capable in handling such matter effectively? finally you (the person who got the fine) has to stay in the police looking for his licence!!!
    This is Sri Lankan Pilice and not in Aussie

    Ajith Monday, 16 May 2011 03:39 AM

    Yes, definitely this is going to be easy, than the trouble of going through post office, and police stations. But, then does it sound like we encouraging law violation? You know when the punishments are easy, violation could be more

    krzy119 Monday, 16 May 2011 03:51 AM

    This is a good solution, if it really gonna happened.But not sure whether Police will like this...
